It all began with a fourth grade field trip. Traveling to Jones Hall in Houston, TX, Myron Martin was exposed to the world of performing arts, and his world changed. Moving to Las Vegas to work with the Liberace Museum, Myron’s journey would wend through a number of Las Vegas institutions, ending up with his being part of the team spearheading the effort to build a world-class, state-of-the-art performing arts center in downtown Las Vegas. In 2012, The Smith Center opened and over the first years of its existence changed the face of entertainment in the Entertainment Capital of the World. Then, the pandemic hit and like every other live performance space in the world, The Smith Center went dark. With the re-opening on the horizon, Myron shares what it’s been like to lead a performing arts organization in one of the darkest time in history and how adding a dog to his life changed everything.
What motivates people? Why do they do what they do? What does leadership actually mean in today’s world? Good questions, right? That’s what Cathy Brooks, thought. And it’s why she created Talk, Unleashed – a new podcast of entirely candid conversations with fascinating people doing remarkable things. This weekly podcast will feature guests from arts and entertainment to business to technology to food to activism to politics (well, we’ll see on that last one). Talk Unleashed invites these influencers to consider the things that have led to them to where they are, the lessons they’ve learned and how all those things can come together to create a better world.
